Despite being fairly unknown, the London duo that are Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman, also known as Dusky, have validated the fact that fame and talent don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand. Starring as one of Anjunadeep’s hottest rescources thus far, Dusky return from the recent release of their debut album to come out with another well-oiled single through one of the record imprints of Above & Beyond. As a counterpart to the abundance of dubstep and wobbly electro-house offerings hitting the digital mark these days, Dusky’s ‘Three Colours’ reflects upon far less intricate build-ups and a soothing appeal. With assistance from large yet smooth kicks, soothing piano chords and mysterious vocal lines, this accompany piece to a re-release of the album single ‘Lost Highway’ sets the standard for the London producers’ music output in 2012. Also included in the package is the winning remix out of the recently finished remix contest for Dusky’s essential contender of 2011, ‘Lost In You’, in which London-based deep House producer Hugga Thugg went victorious.
